How long have you been in business and why did you start GCB Solutions?
“GCB Solutions has been in business for six years. I had extensive experience in packaging and specifically product identification materials and equipment. We identified a need with our customers for a local supplier that had the expertise and focus on customer service that they needed within these product lines.”
What services do you offer?
“We identify the best way for customers to identify and brand their product through custom packaging, labeling, and coding products and equipment. From complex labeling systems to custom labels, corrugated and folding cartons we have a full range of custom packaging. Our customers are food processing, manufacturing companies mainly in Florida and Georgia.”
What makes you different from other printing and packaging providers?
“Our range of products and flexibility. We offer the equipment and the consumables for all types of packaging. We will bring demo equipment to our customers and find the best solution. We can find complex solutions to coding problems. We have installed our equipment in all types of food processing and packaging equipment.”
Do you have a quality policy? What is your quality issue resolution process?
“We offer a performance guarantee with all our equipment. If it does not perform as promised it can be returned. On the consumable side we send our detailed proofs and samples before we produce large quantities of any custom packaging. If what we produce does not match the samples or proofs, we offer a full refund. Attention to detail prior to production and equipment installation is critical.”
What expanded capabilities are you planning to add in the next 2-3 years?
“We are expanding our equipment line to include all the major product identification technologies. Continuous ink jet printers and laser coders are now available from GCB Solutions. In addition, we are taking on more advanced custom integrated solutions. Instead of just integrating our equipment on existing conveyor lines we are selling more complete systems. We have just sold a product feeder for bags that includes a Thermal Transfer printer and a labeler in on unit.”
What has been your favorite custom packaging project and why?
“There are many favorites, I love what I do every day, but we just completed a label project for Star Wars. It was a complex label using a holographic material and we had one version for Baby Yoda (Grogu) and one for R2D2. They printed beautifully and the customer was incredibly pleased.”
